In your main post:
- Compare and contrast what constitutes pathological and requiring evaluation versus understood and not requiring evaluation factors of this type of crime.
- Discuss the possibility that it might be detrimental having a forensic professional involved in these type of cases. Why or why not?
- Determine if the criminal justice system accounts for a crime that starts as domestic violence or assault and results in death differently from a crime when killing is the primary intent of the initial crime. Is your determination detrimental to the offender or to the protection of society?
